Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Wednesday provided updates on the team's two long-term injury questions: wide receiver Breshad Perriman and tight end Dennis Pitta.
Harbaugh said he has talked to Perriman "every day" since his knee was scoped in late September, the week of the Pittsburgh Steelers game. Perriman sprained his PCL on the first day full-team practice at training camp, and was back on the practice field in late September before suffering an apparent setback in pregame warmups before the Ravens played the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.
"It does seem like there's progress being made," Harbaugh said. "What does that mean? I don't know. I'd hate to walk out there on that limb and say something about it. But I'm still hopeful, got our fingers crossed. He hasn't been put on IR yet, so we still have a shot."
Pitta was removed from the physically unable to perform list last week and has practiced four times since last Wednesday. When asked if the team would require the fully-allotted 21 days before Pitta must be added to the active roster or kept on the physically unable to perform list, Harbaugh said he didn't know.
"It really is up to Dennis at this point," Harbaugh said.
Pitta suffered a second dislocated and fractured hip in as many seasons last September, and is trying to make a second comeback, though it's unclear whether he will play in games again.
He said last week that if he couldn't play this year, he didn't know what might change next season. Harbaugh has repeated all year that the decision will rest with Pitta and his family.
